Can anyone identify this part please ?
The long way is around 8 - 1/4 inches (210 mm) ... 6 inch (150 mm) the other way.
It came with a bunch of 'Brit parts I picked up long ago and always wondered what it was, Triumph maybe (The finish is very close to that of the NOS Commando Fastback side cover so guessing British made)
Free to a good home if of any use to someone.

Trick question ?
What is it made of - plastic or rubber.
It looks like a bumper overrider for a Honda sportscar.

But is that a thumbwheel adjuster I can see there ???
And what is the fastener we can just see a part of - metric or imperial.

Ah, a 2nd pic has appeared, didn't show that a moment ago.
That is a convoluted looking thing, with that little webbing strap...

Well Rohan, it looks to be the same fibre glass as the Norton side cover I have but near all the parts (except generic) looked to be Triumph so thought it might be off the same being put in with the rest.

It came with many Lucas switch blocks, perches, levers, a lot of AMAL parts, maybe 20 lbs of mostly Triumph Fasteners so not sure it would be off a Honda.
There was so much good stuff (on closer inspection) I sent the 'older gentleman I purchased it off another payment.

The top picture is the mold side and the resin and pin holes are visible in places, I don't recall seeing anything of that construction on a Brit car either.

Hi Les,

I'm guessing that the grey bit in the middle of the part pointing towards the right of the image is a strap? An educated guess says at least that side of the part is a tool-roll holder? T150 has something very similar, although I don't think that's a T150 bit, although I'm not near my bikes to check. frown

Hth.

Regards,

Stuart is correct, this is how it is fitted on my Trident.

Well you learn something every day.

The 2nd pic, which isn't appearing again, has a webbing strap and buckle,
which presumably is secured to hold the tool roll in there.

If the tool roll stands vertically, what goes in the space underneath ?
More tool roll, or puncture repair kit, or something else.

Thanks, Peter. When I posted, I didn't realise how to get the Les's second image to display.

All good Rich.
May is unknown but will probably have to think about work by then, of course that is the beginning of the dry season in the tropical top end of Australia and my Africa Twin is prepped and ready to go just in case.


I found another oddity, some form of cap for something Triumph electrical perhaps ?
I thought carburetor at first but there are no holes for cables.

And you are think right! It is for a Concentric carburetor some fettling required.

Thank you for that Mr Healy, with some embarrassment I just put my reading glasses on and noticed it is embossed with A M A L.
It seems odd that it has no provision for the cables to exit but appears to be new so fettling it is and onto my 1974 TR5T.

Quite common to find those rubber covers on bikes and cars in UK.
Due to the continuous wet weather I guess.
Very common on car (and bike) distributors.
The original Mini was notorious for having the distributor just behind the grill where it got all of the spray etc from the road.
Quite common in the 60s to see a piece of inner tube pushed over a magneto with holes for the plug leads and tied at the end with a piece of string (no zip ties in those days).
Best of luck with the TR5T!
